When we are present, we are free. If we resist something by wishing or pretending it wasn’t so, we get trapped by it and controlled by it.
When we resist things, we can’t be complete with them. The thing itself can pass yet it stays with us physically and mentally because we continue to judge it or make it heavy. The way to move forward is to accept it fully as it is, so that we can be light and actually be in appropriate action, from a place of love.
There is no future to hide from or past to condemn. Being present right here is what frees us up now and later, and what makes the past perfect as it is.
